We endeavour to support families and individuals with Down Syndrome throughout their life, through a range of Social, Education and Development activities. Recognition of the importance of early intervention and of developing communication ability, with due regard to the individuality of the person, guides everything we do.
The Limerick Branch supports people with Down Syndrome and their families. The Association is parent led and all services and activities represent the wishes of our members.
The primary service at the moment is the speech clinic where two full time speech therapists are employed. In addition to this there is music therapy, drama and swimming on a regular basis and once off courses in make-up, road safety and art classes. The Association also runs summer camps, junior and senior Christmas parties and other social activities. We aim to have a positive input in the lives of our children and help their families.
